Â â€œGood versus evil. A fractured nation. A family torn apart. The banished hero continues to fight from exile. This book carries all the hallmarks of myth, and yet it really happened. Tang Baiqiao has torn back the veil. Let the world take a good long look. Here is a true story of Tiananmen Square.â€
– Thomas Guo Guoting, leading human rights attorney, law professor, author.
Award-winning Chinese human rights lawyer, Guo Guoting, practiced law for over 20 years in Shanghai. But in 2003, Guo turned his practice towardÂ defending journalists, cyber-dissidents, fellow civil rights lawyers, and Falun Gong practitioners. The Chinese Communist government reacted strongly. In 2005, it revoked Guoâ€™s license, placed him under house arrest, and launched a criminal investigation into his affairs. Thanks to appeal by the international human rights community,Â GuoÂ was released from captivity and safely arrived in Canada in Mayof Â 2005. He now lives inÂ British ColumbiaÂ where he writes articles for the international press, edits and translates same, and serves as visiting legal professor at many fine universities.
